My Favorites from Trader Joe’s (and a Trader Joe’s printable grocery list!)

This post is not sponsored in any way – just a post about a place I love. Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite places to grocery shop – not only do they have really unique products, but they are well priced and many of their products are really healthy (though there are definitely a lot that are not! Many are what I’d call fake health food 😉 We started living near one again when my oldest was 2 and since then we’ve always lived close to one. (Dare I say I may have even narrowed down our last housing search with our realtor based on the Trader Joe’s location?! I can’t explain it but I really love this store.)

I like the foods and the community at Trader Joe’s. I remember going growing up and it was always exciting inside – they had a fun atmosphere, unique treats, outgoing employees, and lots of yummy samples. I always remember the staff being so nice and that is true to this day.

When I’ve posted items or clips on Instagram, I’ve had lots of requests for products I like from Trader Joe’s – here are some of my favorites. For being a small grocery store, they sure know how to pack in a lot of great products into a small space. Here we go, My Favorites from Trader Joe’s:



– Prepacked Salads: these are GREAT to keep in your fridge at home or work if you need a healthy and fresh lunch on the go (with no prep work). They have so many great kinds of salads, but these are my favorite pre-packed ones:
